This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Cartographic" (sans-serif) font. This version only has the original Latin and Greek characters, map symbols, and some punctuation, and, like the original font, is missing the []{}@#$%& symbols.

You forgot to do the final sigma... (΢ς)

Comment by Se7enty-Se7en Thu, 21st June

Interestingly enough, the original font in the 1967 paper doesn't have final sigma either! I'm going to add one in the same style as the original paper.

Comment by Lord Nightmare Thu, 21st June

I've added the final sigma, as requested.

Comment by Lord Nightmare Fri, 22nd June

There are two symbols I'm still not happy with, which are the lowercase phi and epsilon, which are technically not the correct symbols at all, in this font, however are true to the original data. The "Mathematical" font has the correct symbols at those two positions, and I may correct it here as well.
